How I Met Your Mother

Showdown - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Ted is giving up with Marshall's best man speech he is holding a pen in his hand as well as a beer bottle. In the next shot the pen disappears and he is just holding a beer bottle. In the next shot the beer is on the coffee table and Ted drops the pen onto the coffee table.

Suggested correction: Depending on the location settings on his laptop, they could be giving a false reading. My laptop shows I'm in Cardiff Wales while in fact I'm nowhere near.

The show was actually filmed on a film set in Los Angeles which is probably why the laptop says Los Angeles as the current location. This most probably slipped past the editing crew.
